HC Deb 26 February 1941 vol 369 cc531-2W
Mr. McEntee

asked the Home Secretary whether a motorist fulfils the terms of paragraph 17 of the Lighting (Restrictions) Order, 1940, if any diffusing material used by him for his head-lamp prevents the light being emitted in excess of 2.5 feet candles?

Mr. H. Morrison

Paragraph 17 of the Lighting (Restrictions) Order, 1940, providesinter alia that an authorised headlamp must be fitted with a mask so as to satisfy the conditions that the light emitted is diffused by the insertion in the mask of a screen of some diffusing material or by other similar means, and that the intensity of illumination of a vertical surface at any point 10 feet from the lamp does not exceed 2.5 foot candles. If my hon. Friend is aware of any difficulty which has arisen in interpreting these provisions, perhaps he will communicate with me.
